Ex-Stone Temple Pilots frontman passed away last month
Scott Weiland‘s ex-wife Mary Forsberg has urged an LA court to name her the executor of his will.
Weiland passed away on December 3 at the age of 48. A toxicology report released earlier this month found the former Stone Temple Pilots singer had cocaine, MDMA and alcohol in his system at the time of his death.
Forsberg has now filed a will with Weiland’s signature that names her as it’s executor. The will was written in April 2007, months before the couple divorced, reports TMZ.
According to the document, Weiland’s estate is worth $2m in assets. A trust Weiland also created contains undisclosed assets. Weiland was married to Jamie Watchel, a photographer he wed in 2013, at the time of his death. It is not yet known if she will contest Forsberg’s legal action.
Weiland’s ex-wife recently wrote a heartfelt open letter in which she documented her family’s broken relationship with the star and urged fans not to “glorify this tragedy” of his death, following his passing.
She wrote: “December 3rd, 2015 is not the day Scott Weiland died. It is the official day the public will use to mourn him, and it was the last day he could be propped up in front of a microphone for the financial benefit or enjoyment of others. The outpouring of condolences and prayers offered to our children, Noah and Lucy, has been overwhelming, appreciated and even comforting. But the truth is, like so many other kids, they lost their father years ago. What they truly lost on December 3rd was hope.”
The singer’s funeral took place at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on December 10 and was attended by members of Stone Temple Pilots and the singer’s other former band Velvet Revolver.
